Netflix is hard at work coordinating schedules with all the actors for the Gilmore Girls revival, and Melissa McCarthy has nothing but warm wishes for the show — but she probably won't be returning.
Apparently there was a little miscommunication around the Boss actress, who used to play Lorelai's best friend and business partner, Sookie St. James, on Gilmore Girls. McCarthy told E!:
"I don't think I am [coming back for the 'Gilmore Girls' revival]. I didn't actually get asked to do it. But I think they thought I was busy, and then by the time it did come up, then I actually was."
It's hard to imagine the show without the emotional, lovable, hilarious chef in the kitchen. But at least there are no hard feelings. McCarthy went on to say:
"I'm actually thrilled that it's happening. I loved that show, and I think the fans for that show are super loyal and great and I will watch every single one of them."
She may be busy now, but what if the Ghostbusters comedienne's schedule clears up in the future? Would she be down for Gilmore Girls 2.2?
"I want to cook again. I want to put salt and then stir. That was seven years of my life and it was really great. I was proud of that show."
I'll take that as a maybe.
The Gilmore Girls revival has already started shooting, although there's still no news on when it will premiere. According to Celebuzz, here are all the cast members that will definitely be returning:

There's no word yet on when the Gilmore Girls revival will air, but we do know that it won't be another standard season. Instead, Netflix has decided to do four 90-minute episodes, each one corresponding to a season of the year. This means we'll definitely have winter in Stars Hollow again!!!! Ice skating, the Winter Carnival, and SNOW!!!!!! Can you smell it yet?
